I stopped by Saturday morning. The wines for the weekend were on the back table. One problem. They weren’t tasting for another 3 hours. So, I tried to get back but couldn’t. These looked pretty good. I really wanted to try the Paydirt Zin mainly because it has a jackass on the label. I’m assuming that people enjoyed these wines considering the Broadsides run in the $30’s. Maybe next week.
